Re: 159 1.9 Jtdm Strange Noise Starting
Ive had exactly the same issue...... I asked the same question on here a few months back, cant rememeber what the post was called though or if there were any answers.
Mine always feel rough to start and sometimes doesnt feel like its going to start at all!
The dealer has checked it without success, i too thought about the button press and now think about it when i start it.
With mine there was also the feeling of something hard hitting something else very hard and you can feel it in the car, the technician said this was common with this type of engine and peugout have similar noises with the HDI engine when there is too much fuel in the system.
Interestingly when i was at the dealer this week they also said that when you press the button and the engine begins to turn over whether you release or not the engine carries on trying to start, must admit i tried this today and it didint do it, i let go of the button after the first couple of turns of the engine and the engine stopped dead.......
